Volleyball's Pitts Selected to Attend 2017 NCAA Leadership Forum

Volleyball's Pitts Selected to Attend 2017 NCAA Leadership Forum

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Sophomore Alexis Pitts of the Converse volleyball team was nominated and selected to attend the NCAA Leadership Forum this past November in Washington, D.C.

The NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum engages a diverse and dynamic representation of student-athletes, coaches, faculty and administrators. Student-athletes selected to attend the forum return to campus with invaluable leadership skills, the experience of exploring the relationship between personal values, core beliefs and behavioral styles, and a thorough understanding of the NCAA as a whole, the different divisional perspectives and the valuable role of Student-Athlete Advisory Committees (SAAC).

The Leadership Forum, created in 1997, has been a life-changing experience for more than 5,000 student-athletes, many who have grown personally and professionally, gained a new network of peers and friends, as well as felt the rewards and importance of community service.

Currently, each Division I and Division II conference office selects student-athletes from among their active member schools and an administrator from the conference office, to represent their conference at the forum.

The Student-Athlete Leadership Forum is a unique educational opportunity that requires diversity and inclusion. Consideration for selecting Leadership Forum participants should be given to student-athletes with a diverse representation of experiences and those that have a positive influence on campus and within the community. Click here for detailed criteria for eligible participants.
